before performing maintenance.
• To avoid severe burns, allow boiler to cool before
performing maintenance.
Boiler operation –
 WARNING
Do NOT install the appliance where it will
be exposed to freezing temperatures.
• Do not block flow of combustion or ventilation air to
the boiler. This boiler is equipped with a control which
will automatically shut down the boiler should air or
vent be blocked. If vent or air blockage is easily
accessible and removable, remove it. The boiler should
attempt to restart. If blockage is not obvious or cannot
be removed, have the boiler and system checked by a
qualified service technician.
• Should overheating occur or gas supply fail to shut off,
do not turn off or disconnect electrical supply to the
circulator. Instead, shut off the gas supply at a location
external to the appliance.
• Do not use this boiler if any part has been under water.
The possible damage to a flooded appliance can be
extensive and present numerous safety hazards. Any
appliance that has been under water must be replaced.
Boiler water –
Factory warranty (shipped with unit) does
not apply to units improperly installed or
improperly operated.
• Thoroughly flush the system (without boiler
connected) to remove sediment. The high-efficiency
heat exchanger can be damaged by build-up or
corrosion due to sediment.
Failure to adhere to the guidelines on this
page can result in severe personal injury,

Prevent combustion air contamination
 WARNING
 WARNING
If the boiler combustion air inlet is located
in any area likely to cause contamination,
or if products which would contaminate
the air cannot be removed, you must have
the combustion air and vent re-piped
and terminated to another location.
Contaminated combustion air will damage
the boiler, resulting in possible severe
personal injury, death, or substantial
property damage.
If the boiler combustion air inlet is located
in a laundry room or pool facility, for
example, these areas will always contain
hazardous contaminants.
Pool and laundry products and common household
and hobby products often contain fluorine or chlorine
compounds. When these chemicals pass through the boiler,
they can form strong acids. The acid can eat through the
boiler wall, causing serious damage and presenting a possible
threat of flue gas spillage or boiler water leakage into the
building.
Please read the information listed in Table 1. If contaminating
chemicals will be present near the location of the boiler
combustion air inlet, have your installer pipe the boiler
combustion air and vent to another location, per the Outdoor
Knight Boiler Installation and Operation Manual.
